Why was iStreetWatch created?

Fitness is clearly a huge part of a healthy lifestyle, but so is protecting yourself. We want to create a resource that promotes both getting active and getting streetwise at the same time.

That’s why we’ve created the site. You’ll be getting a combination of fitness tips along with combat basics which can help get you ready for anything physical.

Who is iStreetWatch?

We are a team of fitness enthusiasts that are dedicated to helping you get fighting fit. Our main interests are in martial arts and how they can be used to both defend yourself and keep yourself healthy.

However, these are not the only reasons why we recommend practicing self defense.

Here’s just some of the reasons why we preach it so strongly:

It helps give you self confidence

One of the main challenges with martial arts is that it can be difficult and complicated to master. However, if you stick with it, you’ll find that you’ll experience a great deal of accomplishment after getting the moves right and having them at your disposal.

This confidence shows you what you can achieve. By doing so, this confidence can cross over into your every day life and help in you both the workplace and in your everyday life.

Martial Arts can help you lose weight

The great thing about martial arts is as well as helping you with learning self defense moves, it is also exercise.

This can help you prevent against obesity, heart disease and other weight related. If you train hard and regularly, you’ll start to notice physical differences in your body. You’ll cut down body fat, and have much better stamina and endurance.

It’s perfect for helping you get into great shape.

Training In Martial Arts Helps You To Focus

Another great thing about Martial Arts is that it takes a great level of skill. As we’ve already talked about this is good for building confidence. However, the road to get there is difficult.

You will need a lot of focus to master the moves and get the result you’re looking for. When you’re training hard, it’s not about how strong you are, it’s how focused you can be to execute effective moves.

In doing so, you need to use a lot of patience and focus to get the result you’re hoping for. Again, these skills can transfer into your every day live and help you out a lot when taking on big tasks or challenges.
